A to Z – Memory Activity for Seniors

Fun for seniors
Here is a nice and easy activity to enjoy with your residents, like most of our activities we encourage you to set the mood with some fun upbeat music. 

Use a large white board for this activity and make a list from the top - A to Z Start with A and ask the group what kind of job or occupation starts with A?
Some answers might be - Artist, Anthropoligist, Accountant, Actor.

When you have exhausted all your A's start on B, writing the answers on the board next to B - Baker, Butcher, Barrister etc. Some letters will be much harder to do than others.

You could also use this activity to name 'Flowers' from A to Z or 'Peoples Names' from A to Z. This gets everyone thinking and interacting together and its allot of fun!
